Hearthstone Esports

Hearthstone is a free-to-play digital collectible card game. Similar to Yu-Gi-Oh and Magic: The Gathering, it is a 1v1 turn-based game where the two players use their collection of virtual cards with the aim of beating their opponent.

Each player has 30 health to begin with and they use their 30-card decks - any combination of more than 3500 different cards - to get their opponent’s health down to zero first. At the beginning of the match, each player chooses from one of nine classes, each of which has its own unique cards and abilities.

Official Hearthstone tournaments are generally played in the ‘Conquest’ format. This requires each player to bring a specific number of decks, with each deck utilizing a different class. Once a player wins a match, the deck they used is removed from the selection pool. The winner is the one who wins the best-of-match-up (usually either best of three or best of five).
